With summer fast approaching and your bathing suit tormenting you from the closet I know you want to drop a few pounds in the next few weeks right? Of course – who doesn’t?!
Here are 15 crazy simple ways to burn more calories and lose weight easily and quickly:
1. Go to Miguel’s Boot Camp in Thousand Oaks
2. Take the stairs
3. Triple your water intake
4. Do intervals (sudden bursts of speed or intensity in your cardio)
In my recent blog post "Being Fat Sucks" we covered a bunch of reasons why unhealthy bodies lead to unhealthy minds and unhealthy lives. But one of the biggest challenges people seem to face is not being in good bedroom shape. Not feeling sexy or attractive is detrimental to your relationship with yourself, your partner and definitely inhibits intimacy. I mean, let’s face it – we don’t just want to work our butts off to be in good shape – we want to be in good bedroom shape and look better naked!
All too often I hear from clients that their weight, stress, exhaustion and body image issues are preventing them from really enjoying their bedroom time with spouses or partners. Embarrassment from weight gain or lack of energy and libido are usually due to a lack of exercise.
The thing is, these are easy problems to fix – if your “Why is BIG enough” (and in this case size does matter!) you can remedy this issue easily – train for the bedroom! Not every ‘gym athlete’ is training for an event or competition, many are simply training for day to day life which includes a lot of time spent in the bedroom!
Why not live a full rich existence which includes a healthy and enjoyable intimacy with the one you love? If you are not exercising and eating right you are not only limiting your own happiness, you are limiting it for your loved ones as well – which is really pretty selfish when you think about it.
I really need your help on this one guys…I’m putting together an eBook filled with healthy recipes – but I really need your suggestions – and I thank you in advance because your favorites are probably other people’s as well and this way lots of people can benefit from this eBook! So…what you would like to see in it?
You can leave me a comment below with your favorite dishes or food type and I’ll upgrade it to a healthier version, or if you just want to know how to prepare an already healthy dish, let me know that too and I’ll pick the most popular ones to include!
Here’s a typical dinner for me, Turkey Burger Patties with Brown Rice and Asparagus –>>

My tips for a delicious and healthier Cinco de Mayo…
- Buy Baked Tortilla Chips instead of fried – available at Trader Joe’s and major grocery chains.
- Make fresh Salsa instead of store bought, you get less sodium more vitamins.
- Use small plates and put your chips and dips on a plate instead of grazing from large bowls.
Alright so here’s the deal – I grew up skinny… and I fought most of my adult life to put on weight and muscle and keep it on. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking “Oh, poor Migs, no matter how much he tries; he just can’t manage to gain any weight – that must really suck… I feel so sorry for him!” Hey, let me tell you something – being a boy and being thin DOES suck!
But you know what? NOTHING I’ve ever been through (and as a Marine, trust me I’ve been through a lot!) seems to even come close to the pain and suffering people go through when they are overweight. The hope of improving my client’s quality of life and my passion for helping them with their transformations has driven me to become not just a personal trainer but a weight loss specialist – and well, a pretty darn good one.
Hanging out with my dad is always such an inspiration, we don’t sit and talk too often – but when we do its awesome! Discussing motivation the other night, my dad stopped me dead in my tracks with this little gem….I had to record him explaining it so I could share it with you.
This is the single most important question you need to ask yourself if you want to change life or your health and fitness…

If you haven’t heard already, you need to know more about sugar. It’s in almost everything you eat, and some doctors go so far as to call sugar a toxin. The average American consumes 130 pounds of sugar a year, much of which is in your beverages! Sugar can take a serious toll on your health, worsening conditions ranging from obesity & heart disease to cancer.
This Cardio & Core Workout will have you sweating up a storm (don’t worry you won’t drown) and burning tons of calories and fat!
